Join Chastity Davis and Danielle Hoogenboom for a special Yin Yoga Leadership Training at Yoga on 7th.
We will be hosting our urban retreat on the traditional and unceeded territories of the West Coast Salish Peoples, Musqueam, Squamish, Tsleil Waututh. The West Coast Salish people have inhabited these lands since time immemorial.
Join us for this training that will disrupt, interrupt and broaden our ways, worlds, thinking and forms. Yin has the ability to cultivate transformative change and asks the major question " What do you need to reconcile in yourself? Healing our own inner wounds is a warrior way that is long overdue and calling you deeply. Let yin yoga guide you in your own time and way as you reveal, reorder and re-narrative the tales in and around you.
Yin Yoga allows charges, stuck energy, old holding patterns and new awareness to enter the lands of your form. How do we acknowledge and greet these messages in our forms will guide and direct the next steps of our path. What does healing mean to you?
This course counts as a 20 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training and includes a certificate of completion under Love Light Yoga School. If you are interested in completing your full 200 hour Yoga Teaching Training, these hours count towards that or as CEU for existing teachers.

From Chastity's website:
Through Chastity’s journey of self-discovery and living her life’s purpose, she became attracted to and involved in the yoga community in Vancouver. Chastity believes in the philosophy that everything and everyone is interconnected. We are all connected to each other through the land in which we all live in relationship with, through the water that we drink, through the air that we breathe, and through the lineage of our ancestors. She also believes that in order to realize and live your life’s purpose, all most be in alignment: spiritual, emotional, mental, physical – body, mind, spirit, heart. Once alignment is achieved, all four aspects of your being must move together as one. They are all interconnected and have an effect on how you show up in the world.
Chastity began her journey with yoga at the Bikrams Yoga studio in the Westend of Vancouver, when she was 18 years old and attending college. As a broke student, she didn’t have the funds for a monthly membership, so she exchanged cleaning the yoga studio for yoga classes. Through her practice at Bikrams, Chastity became stronger in herself on all levels. She then branched out to try Kundalini Yoga at Yoga West in the neighbourhood of Kitsilano, Vancouver. Kundalini is still a staple in her yoga practice. Chastity has traveled the world to practice Kundalini Yoga with the top instructors such as Gurmukh, Snatum Kaur, and Krishna Kaur.
In Chastity’s yoga journey, she by chance hit up a Yin Yoga class at a Wanderlust yoga festival in 2014. Yin Yoga called to her and offered another opportunity to deepen her practice and connect further with her self. She had received many inspiring messages through her practice with Yin and decided to pursue her Yin Yoga certification through the Love, Light Yoga School on the East Side of Vancouver.
Chastity’s focus of becoming a yoga teacher is to bring the practice of Yin Yoga to Indigenous women as part of their healing journey. Yin Yoga is accessible to everybody and holding postures for 3-10 minutes provide an opportunity to connect, listen, and learn. Our bodies are wise and can teach us what we need to grow into the next stage of our lives. Yin Yoga is an opportunity to step into and sit with you. To slow down, breathe, and stretch into yourself.
